Custom multi-level deck with integrated addition (Windham, NH)
Removed existing deck and found extensive rot to the rear of the house. Opened the back wall and found knee wall to be rotted as well and had to replace 60% of the load bearing wall. After removing and replacing all the rot, we resided and installed proper deck and sill connections. Next step was to build the foundation for the deck but after finding the rear of the house was backfilled with stumps we had to remove the preexisting stumps, rocks and loam. Once those where removed we laid out and installed 27 frost posts which would be the support for the two decks and addition. After frost posts where installed we backfilled with 65 yards of processed gravel. The deck was constructed with 2x12 PT lumber 12” O.C. for the need to support a hot tub for the future. All decking 1x4 duglas fir lumber, and railings where all red cedar with a 1x6 white cedar cap. The deck is two levels the lower dimension being 24’x20’ and the upper dimension being 26’x16’.
